Having more students than 50% above the 50th national percentile means that achievement was higher than the national group. Having more than 25% in the upper (top) quarter or less than 25% in the lower (bottom) quarter also means that achievement was higher than the national group. Tables present: (1) percentages of students above the 50th national percentile for each South Carolina school district for grades 4, 5, 7, 9, and 11 and MAT7 percentages in each national quarter for all 5 grades. Test performance results are presented in charts by demographic groupings according to grade and subject area.
